Post-press is everything that takes place after your labels have been printed on the substrate. Finishing is the general term used to define anything done to a production after it is printed. Our postpress service includes embossing, spot varnishing, foil stamping, lamination, die cut and slitting or other decorating effect to add value on your labels. We can make any label according to your design/artwork and suggest the suitable finishing for creating an eye-catching and unique labels.
Embossing is the processes of creating raised relief images and designs in paper and other materials. The procedure requires the use of two dies: one that is raised and one that is recessed. The dies fit into each other so that when the paper is pressed between them, the raised die forces the stock into the recessed die and creates the embossed impression
Varnish treatments are used to decorate label designs or to simply protect the ink and paper, similar to lamination. It can either be applied across the entire page or on a spot basis. When a varnish is applied to the entire label it's called a flood varnish. Flood Varnish can be used to add a matte or gloss appearance to the overall label design, provide protection, and help inks bond with label papers. Spot varnish is applied to specific areas of the label design to make it shinier and leaving an enhanced visual impression. It can be used in conjunction with a lamination and printed over the top to create a more creative and diverse result. Spot varnish is available mainly in gloss and have a wide variety of specialty finishes.
Die cutting is the general process of using a die to shear webs of materials to the shape. On labels, this type of die cutting is known as kiss cutting. After the web is cut, the excess material (called matrix) is pulled away, leaving only your labels behind. Die cutting can be done on either flatbed or rotary presses. Rotary die cutting is often done inline with printing. The primary difference between rotary die cutting and flatbed die cutting is that the flatbed is not as fast and it is a second off-line operation but the tools are cheaper.
- Spot Varnishing
In addition to the common gold, silver, can also be printed with pearl, or shiny and texture effect under the light. Welcome for inquiry.Read More
- Keeping Color Consistency
Why the same artwork printed in different device and different substrates would have the color deviation? Do you understand and can describe "what is your color now"?Read More
